    738 words
    Vanilla skies Heaven Peter Stanford 3844 pp, HarperCollins St Augustine thought nobody farted there. St Thomas Aquinas saw it as a celestial Trades Union Congress - a place where the "communion of the saints" ruled co-operatively. But the Scandinavian version meant a lot of singing, boar-eating and mead-drinking. Heaven can't always wait. Peter Stanford's brisk popular theology - a mixture of creeds, anecdotes and history - shows how the waiting turns into imaginative star-gazing. To write a his...

    842 words
    What is Hell? What is Heaven? Where does a person who commits a heinous sin go? Where does a person who did legitimate things and prays all his life go? This is what distinguishes hell and heaven. Hell is to people, what school is to students, a place where souls of all morals, good or bad, were consigned after death. This is the place of punishment of Satan and the other fallen angels and of all mortals who die unrepentant of serious sin. On the contrary, heaven is to people, what I would be as...
